Have you ever wondered why---
•  does a toaster have a smoking charcoal setting
•  don't we ever hear about a psychic winning the lottery
•  didn't Noah swat those two mosquitoes
•  it doesn't gross us out to eat chicken embryos that come from a hen's butt
   --or to drink the excretions of a cow's mammary glands
•  a dog gets angry when you blow on his face but he loves to ride in a car with his head out the window
•  brain cells die but fat cells are forever
•  the sun makes our hair light and our skin dark
•  there is a light in your fridge and not in your freezer (but there is a light in your big freezer)
•  does mineral water that has "trickled through the mountains for centuries"  have a 'sell by' date
•  we are IN a movie but ON television

If you are still there please enjoy my grandchildrens' concert.

Mom and kids and strings last year.

 This year taller
Still practicing
Getting better all the time
I may be prejudice but they sound superb
With even more talent waiting to be discovered
Daddy time

TexWisGirl said...

Leenie, I haven't dropped by for a while, but you can sure still make me smile, love the photos.

Alica said...

Keep the questions coming...they were fun!
I love your Grandkids' red hair...and I'm biased towards strings (my daughter plays the violin)...would love to hear them play. Maybe they'd let you video them?!! :)

Terry and Linda said...

I think they must take after you...for you are very talented also!

Ooooh, great observations. We seem to be good at blocking our brains when it suits us (like to eat eggs or drink milk). And the fat/brain cells thing stinks. I keep wondering if one day my brain cells will run out completely.

Must be lovely to have a musical family. You've got a whole band in there.

I always love your silly lists!! Your grandchildren are gorgeous -if you ever get fed up with them, I'll take them!!

Butternut Squash said...

I'm not too worried about your brain cells. You are giving them plenty of exercise. You crack me up!

Are those talented kids on You Tube so we can hear them?

Small City Scenes said...

Love the concert. I actually heard the strings. MB

Leenie said...

Sorry, no video. I stay away from publishing on You Tube anyway. Just take my word for it. They are exceptional. Just ask any proud grandma.

I have wondered about ALL those things, I swear!
PS Grandkids look like serious musicians. And I laughed at the Dad-and-me time - hehehe, a sad sign of the times!

Really nice shots! I bet they're very talented!

I've wondered many of those things, but never the toaster thing. Great, now I've got something else to ponder. :)
Your grandchildren look lovely. Too bad you couldn't get a recording of them and post it.
